Earth Emerson is participating in this year’s Recyclemania for the second time, a competition in which colleges and universities across the United States and Canada vie for the title of Grand Champion.
Schools are ranked by how much recycled material they produce in comparison to their amount of trash. From Feb. 3 to March 30, the club hosts several events to increase the college’s recycling rate.
Last Wednesday in the Bill Bordy Theater, Earth Emerson held its first student Freecycle, one of Recyclemania’s events. A Freecycle is a place where students can bring clothing, accessories, or other items they no longer want in the hopes of finding something new.
